LAST TIME OUT
Chicago dropped a 3-0 result in Vancouver on Wednesday night. The Blackhawks' 49 shots on goal against Vancouver were the most shots on goal the team has recorded in a single game this season. Vancouver's 20 shots on goal were the fewest shots on goal Chicago has allowed against any opponent this season.
Calgary took a 6-0 win in Anaheim on Thursday night behind a two-goal night from Mark Jankowski. Cam Talbot turned aside a career-high 44 saves in a shutout, his first shutout as a member of the Flames.
The two teams have split their prior two matchups with each team winning away from their home rink. In Calgary's 2-1 victory on Jan. 7 at the United Center, Dominik Kubalik recorded the lone goal for the Blackhawks. Chicago won the last game of the decade, 5-3, at the Saddledome on Dec. 31 as Patrick Kane (2G, 2A) paced the Blackhawks with four points in the contest.
Robin Lehner returns to the net tonight and Matthew Highmore draws into the lineup in place of the injured Zack Smith (left hand). Brandon Saad will take over Smith's role on the top power play unit.
